Coldplay - Violet Hill (download new single!), Album Cover and Setlist

Violet Hill is the first officially released single from Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends - Coldplay's 4th album to be released on June 17th.

Here's the confirmed set of songs
Stereogum's first perspective on Violet Hill: "Don't let the atmospheric and ambient noise swell out front scare you too much, "Violet Hill" is a rocker's march, with Brian Eno dialing Buckland's guitars into a more biting/less delayed crunch than A Rush Of Blood and X&Y (check the alarm siren bends, etc.). On the other hand, it looks like Brian's still OK with Mr. Martin's favored outro trick of gentle voice/piano chorus reprise. A few more notes to that guitar solo might've helped."

Enjoy it!
